Hi Dave, good news. I believe the drivers installatio should got pretty
straight too. Please, follow the links for the nVidia Linux drivers;
Whislt they do not provide compiled binaries for that Kernel, the
installation script compiled and installed the driver for my gForce4 with
problems. After installing that just remember to edit the X11 configuration
file to enable the nv (if I am not wrong) engine instead of standard VESA.
Also you can compile and install the drivers for the onboard NIC on
the link above.
Hope everything goes fine.

Please respond to
Well I finally got the SUSE 9.0 for AMD64 to work.
Here's the things that were required:
Installed ATA133 Hard Drive to due no SATA Support
Disabled Legacy USB Support in Bios (I don't think this made any
Removed PC from KVM and connected keyboard direct (not USB).
Upgraded Motherboard BIOS to ver. F4 from F2 (GIGAByte Model = KVT800PRO)
which was the final key item I think.
Anyways I was able to Install SUSE 9.0 for AMD 64 after doing the above
boot parameter poll=idle was not required).
After the SUSE 9.0 was installed I removed the direct keyboard connection
and reconnected the PC back to the KVM which uses USB for mouse and
keyboard, rebooted and SUSE picked up on the USB keyboard right away.
Now that it's in, it looks impressive, just two more things I need to do,
one install the Nvidia 3d Driver (looks rather difficult with SUSE 9.0 for
AMD 64) and I am greatly looking forward to the release of Kernel and boot
iso with VIA SATA support so I can take this old hard drive back out.
